When I ran my first half-marathon, I ran in Asics shoes. Since then, I have worn Saucony, adidas, Brooks, Zoot, Newton and a few other brands. Some have been good and some have given me blisters. Today, I picked up a pair of Asics Lyte33 shoes that are super-light and flat.
Since I ran long today (10.5 miles), I didn’t want to use new shoes. I will break in the new Asics on a shorter run next week. Today’s run was smooth and actually fun! I ran at my marathon pace (8-minute-mile). I am barely sore (ask me tomorrow and it may be a different story)!
